Products & Services
1. Why wonít you sell gas equipment to residential
There are several reasons for this. On gas equipment, the most
important factor is that they are†not certified by the American
Gas Association (AGA) for residential use; consequently, should
this range ever start a fire, your homeowner's insurance will not
cover it, and your entire policy may be voided. Consequently, the
manufacturerís warranty is also voided once this unit has been installed
in a residence, and most repair agencies will not service the unit
because of the inherent liability involved in a residential installation.
Also, these units do not have insulated cabinets and feature constant
24-hour pilots, factors which present a potential fire and burn
hazard in the home. Contact your local kitchen designer for help
in locating residentially certified equipment for your home.
2. Will you send samples of your products?
We are not able to send samples of our products, as our entire
inventory is made available for immediate purchase. You may purchase
